The Teamviewer daemon is not running – please start the daemon ubuntu

I have just started using Teamviewer on Ubuntu 13.10 to help a few people setup some software on their computers. When I try and launch it pops up a dialogue saying:

The TeamViewer daemon is not running!

Please start the daemon (needs root permissions) before running TeamViewer

teamviewer –daemon start
….

Trying “sudo teamviewer –daemon start” doesn’t actually do anything – so the solution is to:

sudo teamviewer --daemon enable

  1. Best solution is this one:
    cp /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script/teamviewerd.service /etc/init.d/teamviewerd
    service teamviewerd start

    if you need it automatically starting you can use:
    update-rc.d teamviewerd defaults
